TR Students Receive Superintendent's Awards
Congratulation Abraham Martinez! Abraham is a student at Roosevelt High School. Being short-staffed on custodians is an unfortunate truth for many of our schools, and Abraham took notice of this. He started cleaning the courtyard during his lunch time and even after school. Abraham is not a member of a club or organization – he just decided to help entirely on his own. Not only is he making the custodial crew feel appreciated and supported, but he’s also serving as a great role model and influence on his fellow classmates. When asked why this is important to him, he said that the courtyard is beautiful, and he wants to keep it that way.

Closed Campus During Lunch Periods
Student ID Initiative
Students are expected to have their school ID on them at all times. Students can wear the lanyard with the ID or have it clipped to their backpack.
School IDs are required for entrance onto our school campus after 9:00am, into our school library, and to leave for CTEC or other campus programs including Co-Op.
Students who still need an ID card can obtain one free of charge in the AP Office before school 8:00am-8:40am or during their lunch period. Replacement IDs are also available should an ID card become lost.
Let's continue to support this initiative to support campus safety!
Bus Safety Reminders
- Students must stay behind the white lines in our bus loops at all times.
- Students may not chase a bus.
Please follow these two guidelines to ensure the safety of all bus riders. Failure to do so may result in injury and/or suspension of bus privileges.
